Reviews

PreS-This diminutive book is mesmerizing in its calm simplicity. Cream-colored pages provide the backdrop to clear, precise color illustrations that are executed with artistic aplomb. Each page holds a single image-a bird in flight, an ice-cream cone, a pair of love-struck chickens. This isn't a story; rather, it's a collection of statements defining the wants of both animate and inanimate objects. The format is the same throughout, effectively using the turn of the page to provide the suspense so that, "The bumblebee wants-its flower," "The hen wants-her chick," "The chair wants-its table." No culminating frame brings these disparate objects together; the book simply ends, as many do, with a sleeping child: "The pillow wants-its cheek." This title works both as a way of identifying commonly encountered items as well as a way for beginning readers to make connections between a part and what makes that part feel whole-be it the hat on the little old man's head or the shoe on a foot. A little bit of sweet magic is at work here.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
